Default Recipe & Discussion, Orfy's Mild "mini-comp" for 2011 HBT competition

Here is the main HBT competition thread.

This is what started it:

It'd be interesting to see just how much variation there would be.
I decided on a Mild-- because of the quick turn-around and I have wanted to stick to a recipe as written, for once!

We decided to then:

Yes. It was agreed to stick to it exactly as written (save for your gear/efficiency adjustments & hop AA's).

Then the call for more people went out:

Unless you enter the HBT BJCP competition, too. And win.

Then the prize is the prize!

Thanks for starting the dedicated thread! Do you want to mention the option of a mini-swap so we can compare some of the beers ourselves in addition to the feedback from the judges?

We can totally agree to swap--i forgot that part. Thanks Brian.

It isn't required or anything (obviously).
Personally, I want to see how mine tastes before agreeing to spend the $$ to ship/ or receive. Regardless, I will swap in person with locals (Palefire lives real close to me, for example).

I don't know ... maybe mine will be sooooo good that local authorities will make it a illegal for me to give any away ...


EDIT: (Or, maybe mine will be so lousy that I leave 3 gallons with you ...)

Whaat... people brewing mild's without coercion or happy pills?! I know everyone says they love mild's yet no one seems to make them. I'd definitely be up for this. I just brewed a bunch for a little mild experiment I did a while back. All were delicious and I have a few more going as I type. What's one more?

I just brewed some of this up using AJ's primer. I'll be interested to see how it turns out. I saved a few from before. If it turns out well though, I'm drinking it. If it doesn't, I'm still drinking it.

I have never drank a Mild as far as I know. The beer sounds really good. And it seems like a nice easy brew day. If I can find the time for this one, count me in.
